Description
Larry McMurtry's screenplay turned novel "Lonesome Dove" reached an estimated 23 million homes when it first aired on CBS in February of 1989, bringing much-needed attention and popularity back to the western genre shows on television and in movies. Although his character's names and personalities were fiction- his story was taken from actual historical events- namely, the creation of the legendary Goodnight-Loving Trail in Texas and New Mexico, and the events and tragedy surrounding Charles Goodnight and Oliver Loving. In this episode we discuss the making of the movie "Lonesome Dove" as well as the actual events that inspired it. Credits: "The Goodnight-Loving Trail" lyrics Utah Phillips, Song performed here by Joe Ely.
